This was easily one of my best trips this year. The park was empty. I got there at 8:50 to see maybe half a dozen cars waiting to get in the parking lot. I met up with Kyle, Jerome, and Jim. Our first ride was S:UF as usual. Rode row 8. To our amazement, when we got off, the line was only at the bottom of the stairs. We rode again. Today was going to be a good day.

After S:UF, we were off to Batman which was a walkon except row 1. Skipped Iron Wolf and went to Eagle backwards. This was the only time they raced all day. Next, we did a 3 ride mini-marathon on Hellevator. Then we went on Raging Bull. Rode in row 9 on the teal train. Red wasn't running. Jim stayed at RB and we went to Viper. I think SFGAm has a lap bar shortage. One of the trains has 3 rows missing lapbars, and it's been like that since september.

Next, we went to Demon. Right when we got there, they went to 1 train op. Unfortunately, they removed black, which IMO is much smoother than yellow. Then we went to Deja Vu. Unfortunately, right before they finished checking our seatbelts, the phone rang and they shut down for weather. It didn't reopen. By then, it was time to meet Brad.

We rode everything atleast 3 times except Whizzer and Iron Werewolf which we only rode once each. At 6:30, we went back to S:UF which remained a complete walkon for the remainder of the night. We managed a 22 ride marathon on S:UF, bringing my total number of flights up to 150. 10 of those were without even leaving our seats. We finished the night with a front row ride on S:UF for number 150. Got on the second to last ride of the year. It was a great way to end the year.

Actually, Eagle did race most of the day. Also, they were making you leave seats on Superman even though each row was empty, so I don't know how you could have stayed on unless you didn't listen to the ride ops. They were serious. I rode more than 10 times, but i went back through the line.

What a great way to put 2003 in the books. I was planning on going that day, but with my 102 degree fever i decided to pass. I'm glad to hear you had fun. And of course, I can't wait until next year.
